    Default Have I grubbed it?

    Ok got my veccy Sri 2.2 dti got a very intense service history and I've always Checked the oil every couple of weeks always good, never burned any. I started cycling to work so was using the car a lot less. Obviously neglected the car oil checks for over a month. Went for a long drive up the m90 oil light came on. Switched off engine pulled into hard shoulder. Checked dipstick/ nothing. Now I don't need lectures on oil levels as I'm an aircraft engineer. I got someone to bring me oil and it took 2 litres I got where I'm going and it's been good so far. I'm doing an oil and filter change this week and fitting a magnetic sump plug.

    Other than the obvious possible damage, turbo bearings, big ends etc. is there anything on the 2.2dti that is bad when starved of oil?

    Many thanks in advance...

    Probably be fine.

    Had cars in at work knocking due to no oil and put 3 litres in with no adverse effects.
